“There are people in this world who have experienced great personal tragedy, some of whom just wither away from the pain or meander through life numb until their time comes to an end…She chose to go on and give it another chance, but I think it took a long time for her to heal and to start growing again. In all my years, I’ve learned that life delivers many storms for us to weather. Some will be slow, brooding, quiet beasts, and others will be loud, thunderous, and frightening. But if you’re willing to look close enough, no matter how devastating the storm may be, after the rain you’ll always find new life sprouting in the aftermath.” – After The Rain
“There’s always another storm. It’s the way the world works. Snowstorms, rainstorms, windstorms, sandstorms, and firestorms. Some are fierce and others are small. You have to deal with each one separately, but you need to keep an eye on whats brewing for tomorrow.”
Life can often feel stormy, and certainly unpredictable. You have your entire weekend planned out, and suddenly something comes spiraling out of nowhere. Sometimes we have to trust these moments when it snow in the desert. If we took the time to observe our natural surroundings we would see that it takes a single tree years and years to grow an mature, and that single tree could break in a storm, or stand tall and just lose one branch. But eventually, that single tree will regenerate and grow again. Many things in life happen to us unpredictably. They come out of nowhere at times, but they help us. They create us, and shape our path. Even small occurrences can change an entire pattern of our path. We must stay flexible in our plans, and we must learn that we don’t need to understand everything as a whole. We don’t have to be prepared for these unpredictable storms, because eventually we will regenerate.
